Purchasing Process

Now that you’ve decided on a lot at the ranch, there are several steps that should be considered in the entire process of making Oak Creek Ranch your new home.


Land Purchase

The first step in your move to Oak Creek Ranch is to select the ideal site that meets your needs and purchase the land.


You begin by speaking to one of our team members at Ranchman Properties. The contract is a standard Texas Real Estate Commission contract. The contract and deposit is sent to our local title company.


When you arrive at Oak Creek Ranch you will be taken back by the beauty, hence we understand the possibility of making an emotional decision. Therefore, we allow you to have an unconditional 7 days to back out and receive a full refund of your earnest money. You will not find us "Selling" you land as we know this is a big decision and we want you to be comfortable with the decision you make.


A lot of our customers choose to pay cash for the land. Others choose to work with a local bank to finance the land or a land/home combined loan. You can find more info on our preferred lenders under the financing tab in FAQ.


Land Improvements

In land planning, there are important decisions to consider. Some of the great questions that you may need to answer are these:

  • Which way should I face my front and rear doors?

  • How big a pad site will I need and can I use existing soil?

  • Which way should I turn my horses or livestock out?

  • How should my driveway and parking layout?

  • Where is my septic system to be located?

  • Where and how will electricity reach my home?

  • Where and how will my waterlines go?

  • Do I want automatic outdoor water for my livestock?

  • How should my fencing, paddocks, and turnouts be arranged?

  • Should I plan on underground propane?

  • What about hay storage for livestock?


Making these decisions prior to moving any dirt is essential if one wants a low maintenance, effective ranch. Furthermore, it will cost less to implement these choices in advance and in the proper sequence than to try to identify problems as you go.


Home Building Phase


Once you have purchased a lot, you may choose from any of the many great home builders available in the North Texas area to build your home. We have a preferred builder that specializes in ranch style homes and barndominiums, ask us for more details.
